Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

This is me, as I present myself to customers. "Mr Edwards has spent the last thirty eight years as an Independent IT Consultant (e2-systems.co.uk), carrying out assignments all over the world ... strategic vision ... mastery of detail ... blah, blah, blah". Were we to meet socially, you would learn that I have been married for forty one years, have four children, and have recently swapped the last of them for my demented mother.

I set out to write books that I would enjoy reading. I cover issues that I care about: Peoples' relationships with each other and society at large and how these are influenced by nature, proximity, and belief, in healthy and unhealthy ways; how proximity builds community; aspects of our society that could work better. But I always leaven serious themes and events with humour.

I always wanted to write, and apart from software I have spent much of my working life writing consultancy reports. I abandoned the novel I started the year after I graduated, feeling that with so little experience of life beyond school and university, I could have nothing interesting to say. I leave others to judge whether this remains the case.
